    Time for another homebrew: Brick Breaker 3D. This is the "official" release.
    Every version from RC1 on is developed by Kero.

    How to install
    *.hax 2.0: Simply copy the "3ds" folder into the root of your big SD card.
    .3ds and .cia: Put the content of "3DS_CIA_PUTONSD" on your 3DS' SD card.
    .3ds: Put the ".3DS" file into the root of your MicroSD.
    .cia: Install with your favourite CIA installer.
    other: We supply an *.elf file for advanced users.

    Download
    -Brick Breaker V1 (*.3dsx, *.cia, *.3ds, *.elf) (MIRROR)
    -Brick Breaker V1 (source code) (MIRROR)
    -Brick Breaker RC1 (*.3dsx, *.elf) (MIRROR)
    -Brick Breaker BETA 5 (*.3dsx, *.elf) (MIRROR)
    -Brick Breaker BETA 4 (*.3dsx, *.elf) (MIRROR)
    -Brick Breaker BETA 3 (*.3dsx, *.elf) (MIRROR)
    -Brick Breaker BETA 2 (*.3dsx, *.elf)
    -Brick Breaker BETA 1 (*.3dsx,*.elf) (MIRROR)

    Controls (editor):
    D-Pad: move the marker
    A: change block to destructable one (3 hits)
    B: change block to solid one
    Y: change block to destructable one (1 hit)
    START: Save changes and return to menu

    Changelog
    BETA 2:
    -Added support for Directional Pad, Circlepad, C-Stick and A/Y
    -Added bricks (a block with 3 lifes, undestructable brick)
    -Random map generator
    -Better textures

    BETA 3:
    -Advanced block collision (still not perfect but I think that it's good enough)
    -Fixed a bug where you could see too much of a sprite for one frame
    -Added the main menu and "you lost"-screen (and both are ugly :) )
    -Added 3D (and I destroyed my eyes doing that)
    -Reorganized some parts of the code
    -Added a score on the bottom screen (currently every block counts as 1k)
    -Improved block reflection at the bumper (changed from int to float)
    -Last but not least: a (saved) highscore was added
    (the current save might be deleted with a future update)

    BETA 4:
    -Added audio playback (not the right way to do it and not very good but better than nothing)
    -Added credits
    -Advanced score system: first hit gives 500, second 1000 and third 1500
    -Added instructions
    -Added a rainbow effect for the borders at the topscreen
    -Prettier main menu
    -Fixed some minor stuff

    BETA 5:
    -Added map loading from text file
    -Added map creator
    -Fixed some minor stuff

    RC 1:
    -Tcm0 stopped working on this project and gave everything to Kero
    -Better intro music
    -Reduced unnecessary RAM usage
    -Moved the map editor to the middle of the top screen (looks a bit better)
    -Added touchscreen support to the level editor
    -Fixed serious framerate drops in the credits (it's still unstable but much higher)
    -Fixed a bug where the game didn't recognize that you won (might have led to instant-win before)
    -Fixed some collision bugs (but they will stay in the credits 'game')
    There seem to be more but the remaining ones aren't that game breaking

    Version 1:
    -Complete support for the touchscreen
    -Fixed some collision bugs (like always)
    -Fixed a bug that calculated a wrong highscore
    -Fixed a bug where the game didn't finish after destroying all blocks

    By the way, did you know that we have a DS version as well?

    I can't seem to control the brick breaker at all. Start works to exit. Select works to restart. :unsure:
    I'm using a n3ds 9.9 with menuhax.

    You have to use the touchscreen. Other controls will come in the next release.

    Thanks :)

    You can always release something if you want :) Competition is good.

    Why? He wrote his own brick breaker homebrew before I did but no one is interested in it (maybe because it's based on LövePotion).

    But the homebrew scene is a bit much inactive :/

    But I will sure be using this, it looks nicer.
    I might update mine to fix some bugs, though.

    I was joking: a program with bricks, what should do?

    Thanks :) Do you really think so? I didn't really like a big part of the GUI and it will be updated in the next version.

    Oh, yeah :) But there was no warning by Jwiz33 so far.

    I'm not sure if alleyway or breakout were the original names, but I decided to call this brick breaker :)
